Video - Benefit cheat who could barely walk seen working out in gym

Have your say

Striding on a treadmill for 50 minutes, lifting weights and walking downstairs - not bad for a man who claimed he could barely walk.

This undercover video shows 71-year-old Paramjit Randhawa working out at a Black Country gym at the same time he was illegally pocketing thousands in benefits. Randhawa, of Wolverhampton, claimed £36,000 after telling the Department of Work and Pensions he had severe mobility problems, could only walk 10 metres before feeling severe discomfort and required a walking stick. However, he was caught out after DWP investigators were tipped off about his improved health and then went undercover to film him working out at a gym.
